WITH modern performance nakeds and sports bikes making ever-increasing levels of power and torque, eking extra performance from an already bulging engine is becoming less and less of an issue for fast road and track riders.

For many, the biggest gains to be made are during the deceleration phase and corner entry, precisely where the new Galfer Cubiq brake discs are claimed to make massive gains.

The hexagon design of the discs is based on the crystalline structure of steel molecules and means each hole has a larger internal surface area. The larger the surface area means the more air can pass over the hole. This larger surface area should greatly increase heat dissipation which in turn should help to maintain a consistent feel at the lever.

The design of the new Galfer Cubiq brake discs also allows the weight of the brake disc to be reduced significantly, with Galfer claiming that there is no reduction in braking performance. The reduced unsprung mass should also improve the agility and motorcycle manoeuvrability that’s to a reduced gyroscopic effect.
